    My mama done tol' me,
    When I was in knee pants,
    My mama done tol' me,
    Son! A woman'll sweet talk
    And give ya the big eye;
    But when the sweet talkin's done,
    A woman's a two face
    A worrisome thing
    Who'll leave ya t'sing
    The blues in the night

    Now the rain's a fallin',
    Hear the train a collin'
    Whoo-ee (my mama done tol' me)
    Hear dat lonesome whistle
    Blowin' cross the trestle,
    Whoo-ee (my mama done tol' me)
    A whoo-ee-duh-whoo-ee, ol' clickety clack's
    A echoin' back th' blues in the night

    The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
    And the moon'll hide its light
    When you get the blues in the night

    Take my word, the mockin' bird'll
    Sing the saddest kind o' song
    He knows things are wrong and he's right
    From Natchez to Mobile,
    From Memphis to St. Joe,
    Wherever the four winds blow,
    I been in some big towns,
    An' heard me some big talk,
    But there is one thing I know
    A woman's a two face,
    A worrisome thing
    Who'll leave ya t'sing the blues in the night
    My mama was right, there's blues in the night
